Hardware Compatibility

This is a component level hardware compatibility list. We want to keep it as accurate as possible, but please, do not entirely rely on this list when buying hardware. Add which parts you have working in the categories listed below, or create a new category. Please keep alphabetical order inside the categories. The categories themselves are ordered by popularity. Please list any caveats or problems as well.

  • ONLY add hardware that you have TESTED. Don't add hardware just because you think it might work.
  • Please add hardware into tables.
  • This is for 10.11.6 builds only.

For how to edit the Wiki, please see this thread. Thank you!

Follow rampagedev guide at rampagedev.com/?page_id=144 for initial install. After install, install the rtl8111 2.0 kext. To get audio working disable system integrity protection and add audio injection yes string into clover, after doing this and rebooting, install alc898 applehda patch from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/306562-applehda-for-el-capitan-discussion/page-3#entry2145162 Run this script as root in terminal

Patches Used, select layout ID 2 and restart, audio should now work just fine. As for the graphics, download the latest nvidia web drivers for your exact version of el Capitan and restart with the boot flag nvda_drv=1 you'll want to add this flag to the clover config so you don't have to add it in manually on every reboot.
